Easter Weirdness

I don’t always decorate for Easter, but when I do, I keep it weird and simple. This is as far as it went this year. Less strange than last year’s web, but same eggs holding tight! Lucky us, we have a glass hoarder AND a stick hoarder living in this household, so this modern take on an egg tree was way easy to throw together on our dining room table.
Happy Easter everybody!!! xoxo

California White Christmas

Down to the wire! Popping in for a last minute post to share our other tree – so flocked – and a semi-clean family room before the big day. Though we rarely get a live tree, nothing says Christmas quite like a real tree covered in fake snow. A west coast invention I’m sure! My grandma always had the prettiest flocked tree full of amazing glass animal ornaments, so it’s been fun to have a flocked tree of our own, just this once!

I honestly haven’t been in the mood to celebrate or talk about decorations from my safe and cozy home when there are so many humans in the world fighting for their rights, freedom, and life. I hope that all of us privileged enough to even concern ourselves with decorating a home for the holidays can seek out the things that break our heart and do something about them. This world is a rough one. All hands on deck. xoxo

Christmas Den

mid century christmas aluminum treeChristmas happened all around the house but I’m only sharing the den today because of this real life fact: I’m incapable of having two rooms clean at the same time. Today the den is clean. The rest of the house looks like the Wet Bandits blew through town. My kids are in an incredibly prolific mess phase right now and I’m sure homeschooling is only intensifying mess production. Consequently, I’ve resisted decorating a bit this year. December is crazy enough without clutter so I’ve been trying to keep things simple. I even put away some of the knickknacks I took out…so Grinchy, but necessary for sanity.

Completely in opposition to all that, we have 2 trees up this year. (Hold on while I stuff all that ridiculous complaining about excess back up inside of me.) We popped for the rare real tree. Flocked! It’s super cute and smells so good. Even so, I couldn’t resist putting up our aluminum tree. It’s OK because my tired eyes can totally handle this semi-monochromatic room of joy.mid century christmas aluminum treemid century christmas aluminum treemid century christmas aluminum treeI’m gonna use every ounce of energy to get the family room cleaned up for long enough to snap some pics (done!). Wish me so much luck. Seriously. Merry Christmas everybody!!! Tis the season to be messy!
